The lavender field at Lavandário, in Cunha, in the interior of São Paulo, is full of charms reminiscent of the most romantic settings in France.

A beautiful field of lavender in incredible lilac tones, which are even more accentuated during the sunset. This scenario may even be reminiscent of the lavender fields of provence, in the south of France, but it is the Laundry in the city of Cunha, on the border between São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. 

The space brings together more than 40,000 feet of lavender flowers that stand out in the midst of mountains that appear on the horizon. But, after all, how to visit this place that looks like a little piece of France in Brazil? We will explain everything you need to know to take this tour.

One of the questions that many people ask before visiting the Cunha's Laundry is: when can I find the flowering fields? The good news is that this is possible all year round, since rotating pruning is carried out on site, which allows the plants to flourish regardless of the weather. 

For those who go with family, the structure of the place is good, with restrooms and a cafe. Visitors can access the lavender field via light trails and wooden walkways. It is not possible to walk among the flowers as this could stunt their growth or damage them.

There are several viewpoints scattered around that allow you to take incredible pictures of the panoramic scenery amidst the flowers. Therefore, many people take advantage of the visit to carry out photo shoots. Try to visit the place early in the morning or at the end of the day, when the lavender's lilac hue is enhanced. 

A charming Provençal-style house still offers products developed with essential oils from the plant, as well as seedlings for those who want a lavender in their home, all developed in the Laundry itself.

A tip is to combine the visit with the Contemplário, another perfect place to admire beautiful landscapes, take a deep breath and be enchanted by a scenery full of plantations of lavender, rosemary, lemon grass and other aromatic plants.
